| | Lingual Braces - Problems!!!!
Someone please help!!
I got lingual braces about 10 days ago.
Since that time, I have had a few problems:
1. When I bite, only the right side of my teeth meet!
The left side has a large space between the top and
bottom rows. Does anyone know what's going on?
I keep biting my jaw which goes between the space!!!
2. Apparently, I clench my teeth together when I sleep.
This morning, I broke the bracket? on the inner lower molar that it furthest back. I'm sure that this is pretty bad since I have linguals and this bracket, is the one that seems to be kinda holding everything in place.
I called my orthodontist's office and the assistant told me to put it in a bag and bring it when I come for my visit in another 4 weeks...seems like a long time to wait to me. Will my teeth have gone back to their original, unadjusted positions by then?
Also, I'm pretty ticked b/c I don't see how, if the brackets were properly placed, I could bite down and break one off (it's on the inside of my tooth).
Can someone tell me where I can find a contraption to stick in my mouth between my teeth while I sleep so that this does not happen again?
